I think its the equivalent of a high school. Student population of around 1000-2000.

Im 14 aswell, and i am going into my second year of high school

Schools in Denmark are much easier.. I'm 15 and I'm also beginning my final year in school. There is only one kind of school, sort of like an elemetary, from kindergarten to 9th grade. Then of course, you can chose to educate yourself further or continue in the gymnasium (I think it's about the same as college).

Funny thing in Denmark is.. You don't have to pay for an education, in fact you get paid!!

But let's get back to topic, shall we :)

yes, you should soon find the weight normal.

Handholding a 600 f4L IS should greatly help you get used to the weight of the 70-200 f2.8L IS

Hi Zerimar,

Apparently no one I know owns a 600mm lens but I try to minimise the use of a tripod while using the 70-200mm non IS lens.

I am getting more and more used to the weight but this combination (70-200mm L + 400D) is very front-heavy and the lens keeps becoming pointed down while I wear the camera strap on my neck and then the 400D's corner pokes into my abdomen.

Nice impression of the 70-200mm L lens SnS. I won't discuss the Dutch school system, I'm finally done for this year, so I don't want to think about it for a while :D .
As I've mentioned before, I tried the Sony 70-200mm in a local photography store, and I noticed the weight too. In a positive way though, the bigger, the heavier, the better! My arms are strong enough to walk around with the 1.3kg lens for a quite a while. Gotta save a little longer though...

BTW: the 70-200mm F4 from Canon has a smaller max. aperture, but it's sharpness is said to be similar to primes, so extremely good. That's something to take into consideration (together with the price) if you don't intend to use F2.8 too much anyway!
